establishing a healthy agricultural estate

P1520660.JPG
 

RAFT transformed this historic Connecticut farm into an ecologically productive landscape. Seeded perennial meadows and restored woodlands frame views to the forested horizon. Daylighted drainage systems support a rain garden of native wetland plants. 

Recycled granite curbing defines a granite arrival court and terrace which orient visitors to the vast scale of the property.

The landscape enriches habitat for birds, butterflies, and bees that will, in turn, be beneficial to the orchards and organic kitchen gardens of the property.

Collaboration with: Larry Weaner Landscape Associates
